In a world where only one concept of dumplings is accepted – if you cut us, we bleed pierogi – a small phenomenon has appeared in a rather inconspicuous part of Kazimierz.
You have to turn right from where you would normally go, the busy part being what is on the left from Krakowska st, and enter a small, quiet street, which bears no sign of being in a party neighbourhood. And there you’ll find it – Kanton dim sum house.
Dim sum is a dish popular elsewhere, but in Poland it has yet to conquer hearts and minds. It seems that it’s on the right track though, as the place attracts plenty of people – some eating before what seems to be a night out, some simply dining, some grabbing stuff to go. The popularity is comprehensible – the food is really good – nicely served, light, but still a comfort food. Also, there are plenty of options, so everyone should be able to find something to suit their taste.
The venue recently got renovated and extended, plus they have some new dishes on the menu. You can take dim sum to go, but the ritual of eating them freshly prepared, from bamboo steamers, with various sauces (to accompany different flavours) is yet another perk of the whole experience. Come, eat and enjoy!
